Same story... music gifted as a brick, LSD and factorio.
One day factorio wasn't enough of a challenge and I decided to play factorio in IRL. now I run a furniture factory and it all started with a kids bed :)
Wisecrack6659196dBeing gifted has nothing to do with it.
Heres what I want you to do:
Start by whistling tunes. Yes really.
Do that for six months whenever you're alone.
You'll start by whistling songs you know and like.
Eventually you'll just naturally elide into new tunes (melodies mostly) based on *keys* you've heard before.
You wont be able to name all the notes in any of these keys, let alone the keys themselves.
But by the end of it you WILL be creating original melodies.
From there you can hum them into a tuner to figure out the notes one by one. And then use chord finders to find matching keys for your melody.
Also, start writing poetry. You wont be good at it, but in a 12-24 months this will naturally merge with the learned skill of coming up with melodies on the spot.
This is how I learned and it'll work for you too. Melody. Songwriting. Singing. These are not "talents", these are skills. Most people just dont see the fumbling that refines them into a solid foundation.
